umm..I think that's just a trial
siliticx  +   1507d ago
Play as much as u can during 1 full hour
can purchase the game after and continue.
Raf1k1  +   1506d ago
Downloading 12GB to try it for an hour isn't something I'd be wanting to do TBH but from having played it already I can safely say that anyone who bothers to is most likely to purchase the full game so it's not all bad. 12GB is enough to put most people off from trying it though.

You know, out of all the damn trial PS+ provided..
I havn't bothered w/ any of 'em.
mainly for two reasons:
It's never a new game :( So I've usually tried it before.
or the d/l is obnoxiously large, that kinda puts me off.
So far, it's been a combo.
I've played/own every game they've put up trial's for.
I"m waiting for the day I will be actually using this opportunity >.<

Plus if I read it correctly, you have to DL the entire game again if you want to buy the full game.

WildArmed  +   1506d ago
Yes.. yes you do..
if you decide to purchase it digitally >.<
Raf1k1  +   1506d ago
@Neo Nugget, if you've downloaded it and decide to buy it you won't need to download it again unless you deleted before buying.

Metal Slug X

I love Metal Slug games. X is one of my favorites, next to MS:4

Unrelated to that game:

Does Sony offer any free themes anymore, or have they pretty much made it known that they are going to push their paid content from now on?

does anyone know if modern combat needs the navigation controller or can u use the ds3 in place of it?
Qui-Gon Jim  +   1507d ago
All Move games can use the DS3 in place of the Navigator.

DlocDaBudSmoka  +   1507d ago
i knew the early ones could. i didnt know if sony would make the nav. controller mandatory or not. +bubs
Qui-Gon Jim  +   1507d ago
I'm sure they'll keep it as an option because if you try using the DS3, you'll be wanting a Navigator. I was wanting one after just a few minutes of trying Heavy Rain with holding a DualShock with one hand.
Pillage05  +   1507d ago
You can in the demo just... for reassurance. Use the ds3 instead of nav. that is.
Qui-Gon Jim  +   1507d ago
Wait a minute. DLC for Mass Effect 2?
I thought it already came with all the DLC.
infamous-butcher  +   1507d ago
I thought all the DLC for Mass effect 2 was free.
its all there and priced as um not free.
DlocDaBudSmoka  +   1507d ago
that might be there for those who d/l ME2. im not sure, but its the only thing i can think of.
LtSkittles  +   1507d ago
I think it's for people who buy it used. I don't think Sony, or EA would shaft people who download it, by not including it. I don't know, I could be wrong.
ExPresident  +   1507d ago
The disc has some DLC on it but I think this DLC may be for people who buy it used and be 'extra' DLC for people who don't want to wait to get guns unlocked through gameplay I think. Then again I don't know lol :)
Qui-Gon Jim  +   1507d ago
i looked at the Amazon listing, and it looks like the DLC that is included is three expansions that have extra missions. The stuff that's on the store is extra armor and weapons. The listing also says that it comes with a one-time code for the cerberus network to download more stuff, but i don't know what that makes available.
Rainstorm81  +   1507d ago
If its anything like the 360 version, the cerberus network code lets you download extra guns and armor and a few extra side missions FREE.

Without the cerberus code you will have to purchase all of those extras.
ExPresident  +   1507d ago
The fact that Sony is selling Modern Combat at a discounted rate to its PS+ subscribers on its release day is HUGE. They are listening apparently because PS+ users have been clammering for that since PS+ came out.

Pretty decent update this week across the board.
StarScream4Ever  +   1507d ago
Anyone got hands on Modern Combat yet? Sry I'm rushing back to my apartment as fast as the freeway traffic can move. XO
Pillage05  +   1507d ago
Played the demo...it's pretty good but it only lets you play bomb and bust or whatever it's called(the one like counter-strike, plant the bomb at a or b). It makes you reload the map between every round which is pretty annoying.
StarScream4Ever  +   1507d ago
Sounds fun. :)

Dwnlding now.
nevin1  +   1507d ago
Im sorry but I found that mode to be a snooze fest in other FPS demos like MAG, Bad Company and Medal Of Honor.

Why do these developers put that mode as the showcased? I will try the demo anyway.
BakedGoods  +   1506d ago
Actually, if you select the second 'online' option from the menu you can do Team DM and Domination, Ranked too.
Octo1  +   1507d ago
I know that this is a bit off topic but did anyone buy the Collectors Edition for LBP2? I got mine today and when I picked up the copy at EB games they gave me a voucher with a code to clam the various sackboy costumes and avatar that you get with the PS3. So after I entered the voucher code I got from EB games(which worked), I opened the game and another voucher fell out for the same thing. The only difference between the 2 is the voucher from EB games expires on 3/18/2011 and the voucher I got in the game does not appear to have an expiration date.
Cenobia  +   1506d ago
I think certain retailers get certain codes. I got mine from Amazon which apparently gets a Ratchet and Clank costume (I think).

The voucher you were handed was probably EB specific costumes, while the voucher inside was for collectors edition specific costumes (I think some additional animals and a bunch of other things).

In short, enter them both.

Edit: It looks like the EB games costume is Clu from TRON. I guess EB games counts as Gamestop.

I entered the voucher code from EB games and that downloaded all of the costumes and avatars as well. On the EB voucher these are the downloadable costumes that I got when I redeemed it:
-Tron costume
-Jak and Daxter costume
-The Great Gonzo costume
-Ratchet and Clank costume
-Alien Costume from Toy Story
-Even more Animals costume
Then of course the 5 PSN avatars.The voucher that came in the game has these listed as well if I were to redeem it. So i'm thinking I got another voucher :)

Been kind of hyped for Modern Combat Domination. Played the demo and just wasn't really feeling it :/. I'm wondering if this is the case in which the demo does not do justice to the game as a whole.
Pillage05  +   1507d ago
I want to try out the team deathmatch before I buy it...it's only 8 bucks but still..lol
Myst  +   1507d ago
Same here. I actually thought I was trying that lol oh well may still get it since it's not really that expensive.
Pillage05  +   1507d ago
boom and bust only for the demo...I think you actually have respawns in tdm judging by their description of the mode in help option.
Myst  +   1506d ago
Ah okay thanks, guess I will get it then.
Epicor  +   1506d ago
I was hyped for that game as well but let's face it: the game sucks. Tried the demo and...meh. The move support isn't really a selling point either - they clearly couldn't implement it properly.
Myst  +   1506d ago
Eh yeah I wasn't to proud of the demo either that is until more people had joined and I was actually facing others rather than NPCs. I just took a leap of faith and bought it anyway. Seems like something that would be fun off and on.
nevin1  +   1507d ago
Whats with the $7.99 Neo Geo games for PSP?

anyway, is TV show King worth a $1? How deep is the Demo for Modern Combat?

lol at Modnation racer "Unlock key" wtf? Does it affect trophies?

Alot of PS1 games seem steep especially when they take less than 71 MBs. $5.99 each is to much. I think more people will buy then if they were more reasonable.
Kon  +   1506d ago
Wait a sec... You have to pay $15 too have access to the comic???
vegetassj51  +   1506d ago
the game comes with a free code for the $15 dlc, but if u buy it used u have to pay for it
Kon  +   1506d ago
Thanks for the answers guys.
JoshuaN4G  +   1506d ago
Game comes with the code to activate it... unfortunately cerberus network is down right now.

I have no idea why they didn't put the comic on the disc...
kasasensei  +   1506d ago
60 fckg$ for mass effect2 download version? that's crazy...
SpinalRemains138  +   1506d ago
??? It's the same game dude. Why would you expect to pay less? You can try it for free even. If you don't like it, you erase and move on. Man, ppl will bitch about everything. Games cost 60 dollars nowadays
kasasensei  +   1505d ago
it's a download version get it? you like to get f*cked? good for you, but not me. ;)
Limitedsphere  +   1506d ago
I think most of those ME2 packages is a bit overpriced? Or is it reasonable. The cerberus pack doesn't really add much and that costs a massive 15 $.
Myst  +   1506d ago
It's equivalent to how it was priced on the 360. Cerebrus pack opens up the door to some other DLC if I remember correctly that you'd otherwise had to pay for. If you get the game new you should get it either way.
SpinalRemains138  +   1506d ago
ME2 - GOD-Dam! 496 minutes left lol 1% so far. Better crack open that Arturo Perez Reverte novel I been meaning to finish.

Nothing like an old fashioned 8 hour download. jeez I never downloaded anything this long before. Hope the game is fun.
